The mission of the Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners is to help protect the health and safety of the citizens of the State of Texas by ensuring that our drinking water, air, and medical gases are not contaminated and that we may live and work in the safe conditions that properly installed plumbing systems are designed to provide. Additionally, by offering public and industry awareness programs, we educate those that utilize plumbing systems as well as those that do or will install plumbing systems now and in the future. Awareness and education programs are also utilized to reach those considering the plumbing profession as a career. Through fair and consistent regulation of the plumbing industry, and by examining, licensing and registering plumbing professionals, the Board ensures that qualified individuals follow clear standards while protecting the citizens’ health and safety.
